This course outlines the basics of substance use disorders/addiction, opioid use disorder specifically, discusses various models of treating substance use disorders (biomedical, psychological, and biopsychosocial) and addresses stigma and biases related to substance use, as well as an overview of some harm reduction strategies. In addition, the course provides information on some aspects of the nuts and bolts of what it takes to provide opioid use disorder treatment through an integrated care team approach.

This course is designed for providers, clinical staff, behavioral health clinicians, pharmacists, or any staff interested in learning more about use disorders.

The aim of this program is to address gaps in team-based care for substance use disorder treatment. Learners need to better understand what a substance use disorder is, the stigma and biases faced by a person with a use disorder, and the most evidence-based ways to treat a use disorder in a team setting.
